The report read: "Glaciers in the Himalaya are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate." –Jonathan Leake and Chris HastingsTwo years ago the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a benchmark report that claimed the world's glaciers were melting so fast that those in the Himalayas could vanish by 2035. (see article)
Based on what—Global warming science? No based on now admitted misinformation and speculation.
For what purpose you ask? It was the continual Global warming scare that the United Nations and it’s made up consensus of scientists were promoting in order to force their “green agenda” on the world. But more importantly to move the world economies towards a cap and trade trading market which would produce new revenue streams and taxes for the United Nations.
The Glacial melt deception was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal. The New Scientist story was based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC's 2007 report.
It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.--Jonathan Leake and Chris HastingsAccording to Jonathan Leake and Chris Hastings reporting for the Timesonline, Hasnain has since admitted that the claim that the Himalayas could melt by 2035 due to Global warming was "speculation" and was not supported by any formal research.
And now finally, The U.N. IPCC has admitted that they were totally wrong on the Himalayas claim. (see story)
The vice-chairman of the UN's climate science panel has admitted it made a mistake in asserting that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035.–Richard BlackSo to summarize, in 1999 the once reputable science journal, New Scientist, published a story which was a telephone interview with a little-known Indian scientist.
In 2007 the United Nations lifted this story as evidence for their claims of Climate Change and Global warming. The story was not verified and was not based on science.
It was purely one man’s speculation used to prop up other men’s propaganda. Propaganda used to promote a global agenda to create wealth for a few by creating a world-wide carbon tax to be paid by tax payers regardless of national affiliation. And now the UN IPCC admits that they were completely wrong about the Himalayan glaciers melt.
In other words this was a first step to create a global revenue stream to be used by internationalist in the United Nations and so—called global leaders that are independent from the voting public.
Bottom line is the great Himalayas melt is based on misinformation and speculation and the claim has been retracted as an error.
So much for the farce of Global warming.
